The condition of the M40 and BWB is amazing.
Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377
Surely the BWB couldn't have been recovered from the ground?
Thats not find...., thats a hoard!!
Congrats to your friend.
No chance the BWB could be a "dug" item...
Thanks for the update, Sebastien! The Luftwaffe Flak Sign reads "Feuerstellung", meaning "Firing Position"...Thanks for the photos and I wish you continued luck out there, friend...
again nice findings good luck to you ...
Actually it can be so. If it is made of brass, it will be ok even after 300-500 years. I have seen brass items made 2000 years ago and after some cleaningwith water they looked like very OK.
